Long tail of research data IG


Group details

Chair (s): 
Case Statement: 
IG Established

Status: Recognised & Endorsed

Universities and research institutions are becoming increasingly interested in collecting and providing access to datasets produced at their institution that do not fall within the scope of other discipline-based, or government repositories. The aim of this Interest Group is to develop a set of good practices for managing research data archived in the university context. The scope of the topic will be limited to the data generated in universities and research institutions and the role of institutional repositories and libraries as agents of the institutional data management.
